Interview: Abdullah Mohtadi, secretary general of the Kurdish Komala Party, On May 9, five political prisoners were executed by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Translator’s note: On May 9, five political prisoners were executed by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Four of these prisoners were Kurds, including the young teacher, poet and writer, Farzad Kamangar, and a young woman, Shirin Alamhouli. Following these executions, a general strike took place in Iranian Kurdistan on May 13. Mir Hossein Mousavi, Mehdi Karroubi and many Green Movement activists also condemned the executions. Three months prior to the May 9 executions, Abdullah Mohtadi, secretary general of the Kurdish Komala Party, had issued a statement aimed at forging solidarity between the Kurds and the Green Movement. Large translated excerpts follow. My glosses are interpolated in square brackets
